Epic Games Store Holiday Sale - Get Into The Breach for Free

The Epic Games Store Holiday Sale 2019 is now underway, offering discounts on loads of games, and a $10.00 off coupon for all participants. On a related note, the Epic Games Store now offers Into The Breach for free to keep, the first of the 12 freebies they recently promised. It seems the plan is to offer these one at a time, so this is free until tomorrow, at which time it will be replaced by another giveaway. Here's the quick description of this Roguelite turn-based strategy game from the creators of FTL:
Control powerful mechs from the future to defeat an alien threat. Each attempt to save the world presents a new randomly generated challenge in this turn-based strategy game from the makers of FTL.

You might try something like revouninstaller and use it to nuke every folder, registry entry and every bit of leftover detritus after uninstalling.

Giving that a go now. I've done several restarts without success.

Fingers crossed.

Edit: After all that, I don't even know how it worked, but it did. After a combination of reboots and all that, it just... came good. I installed that Revo program but didn't even end up getting a chance to use it.

One of those things.

Not gonna lie, Division 2 for 5 bucks is pretty sweet. Been a long time since Steam had a sale that good (though I did pick up DMC5 for $14.50 at GMG).

Such as disabling your firewall and adding commands to the launcher shortcut before running it, that kinda thing? I don't know, maybe google just likes you more than me today, but nothing that's been proposed as a fix worked for me.

I've just left it running now. "Please wait while we start your service". Yeah yeah yeah. Been at least a couple hours now.

It's pretty funny, I just want a new game to play and the survival update to World War Z ticks all the boxes, but I literally... cannot... buy... it.
Restart your computer ( it fixes the stupidest things)
I think I saw your Reddit.
It appears to be a rare bug or the internet would have gone full thermo nuclear mode by now.

Epic Games Launcher.

"Please wait while we start your update".

How long? An hour? Two? Ten?

I've had Epic installed for months and went to actually use it this morning but I was logged out - don't you hate how everything bar Steam just can't seem to get that right? (Uplay, I'm looking at you)

So I tried to log back in, verified with the code emailed to me... and it kicks me back out. Did that half a dozen times.

Uninstalled. Reinstalled.

Or at least, trying to. It won't go beyond "Please wait while we start your update".

Forced it down. Uninstalled. Reinstalled. Same thing.

Seems I'm done.

If only World War Z was on Steam. Oh well, your loss guys.

Is Below Zero worthwhile for someone that was enthralled with the early and mid game of Subnautica but totally got bored in the late game?

Later vehicles were more trouble than they were worth (yet utterly necessary), there became less and less direction on where to go (seriously, finding the lava fields without using the internet seems unlikely. Obviously people did it, but it was well hidden and I found nothing directing me there), and it started to feel tedious. Getting places wasn't easy. Getting resources wasn't easy. Your new vehicles had a LOT of resources tied up in them and didn't feel worth risking, since resources didn't renew and rebuilding one of them, with the mods, would be an arduous task.

But I loved the initial exploration, finding new worlds, new parts, new base rooms, new creatures, etc. It was only going into the very end that it started to feel like I'd be going somewhere more trouble than it was worth. (I think part of it is that I never fully learned the mechanics of what can kill you, because losing a vehicle once taught me mostly to avoid, and therefore I had no clue if something would follow me to the heavens, or follow me 10 feet.)

The EGS sale is way more exciting than Steam's. That 10 bucks coupon is sick. Subnautica Below Zero for 6 bucks had me buy an EA game. I don't buy EA games.
I forgot how to shit.

I'm not surprised.

Into the Breach has a bunch of squads to unlock and some of them will really click while you will hate others. It's a subjective thing so sometimes people will only really "get" the game once they unlock their favorite. The game really punishes you for mistakes but it is much more fair overall than FTL which had some seriously annoying RNG issues at times. There are few situations you can't think your way out of if you're careful.

Playing on Easy isn't really that hard. I can never lose on easy regardless of the squad I choose.

Yeah exactly glaze. It gets compared to other TBS games but I find it more like playing chess with mechs. Almost every situation is winnable but your fuckups do more and more damage to your overall campaign as you go.

I really like that it's a short game too, you can do an entire campaign in an hour or two, its intended to be replayed.

I enjoy ITB gameplay, it's actually amazing that every level seems "winnable", but prior mistakes (from previous levels) by the player do compound, and losses feel more self-inflicted than simply facing overwhelming enemies.

I just wish it had the humor of FTL... and the personality that ‘choose your own adventure’ decision gave room for.

Still good!

ITB might be my favorite game of all time, though it took me a few weeks of jury duty and associated 3 hour commute per day with it on my switch to realise it.

It's so, so perfect.

As much as I absolutely adored FTL (especially the 'Advanced' edition, along with some of the major mods, like the one that lets you free roam indefinitely and gives you tons of more weapons and gear to buy), I just couldn't get into..uh, Into The Breach. I dunno why, it just didn't grab me. Maybe I didn't understand the rules correctly? Was I the only one?

=-Rigs-=
I'm in the same boat... I have over 500 hours in FTL, but I never bought this one because it looked boring. I'll give it a try now that I have it, but I also passed back when it was $2 so it's not about the price- I've just heard enough people say that it is actually fun even if it's nothing like FTL.

Same. I have over 600 in FTL. Over 400 in the 2 new XCOMs combined. But this didn't capture me.

In truth, all I did was the tutorial mission, which isn't really giving it a chance. I'll get back to it some day. But, there's so much more FTL to play. I still haven't won with every ship on Hard!

After a few missions you'll realise how clever the game is.

YEAH, - $10 coupon right away to spend on anything that is $14.99 and up , plus you get another $10 for any purchase ??

SO I can get World War Z for $4.99 ( using the initial $10 coupon) .? ... and I get another $10 coupon for spending the 4.99 .?

RINSE-LATHER-REPEAT ? You can keep getting a few decent games for only $4.99 ?..if I am reading all this correctly ?


Oh, if they only had the gifting up & running !!! Some people would be getting a couple decent games for $4.99 for Christmas ....
